Luggage Tag Color?
I'm printing out our luggage tags now, and noticed that the section where the room is listed, is PURPLE... does the color matter on disembarkement day? Does anyone know if purple leaves first or last?

The luggage tags you have printed are only to get your bags to your stateroom.

The last day of the cruise you will receive new luggage tags with a number on them. This number defines disembarkation order AND where to find your bags in the terminal. The assignment of disembarkation numbers is based on a secret formula that probably has to do with your status with Carnival (VIP or not) and when your flight leaves - that is why the ask for it on your Fun Pass.

If you don't have to catch an early flight, why hurry off the ship.

Hi mosiegirl! Yeah, mine for Destiny next week are purple too-but it says on the tags that they can be printed in black and white, that it doesn't have to be I don't know if it actually means anything or not...haha

Luggage tag colors
I believe it just helps them sort all the luggage when embarkation. With that many pieces of luggage they probably do what they can to make it easier to make sure everybody gets the right luggage. Even if you print it black and white it still has your deck and room on it. The color just hurry the process along. :)

The color for boarding is different than getting off the ship. Your purple color helps the crew deliver you bags to the right cabin/deck. The colors to get off have to do with the time you get to leave the ship. Once you get your luggage, just throw those tags away, you will not be using them again.

When you exit into the terminal, you will find most of the luggage is black...A sea of black ....Try to put something on your luggage to make identifying your pieces quickly..this is where people get very creative.I have seen crime scene tape,and bright bath scubbys:)

The last few times we picked up our luggage in the terminal,
ours was the only luggage with our school colors and mascot
on the bumper sticker stuck through the handle. Be creative.
